An MSME degree with the non-thesis option requires students complete:
- All MSME core courses
- A total of 30 credits (including the MSME core) of non-thesis coursework
If a student begins a thesis but fails to complete it, up to two thesis credits can count toward the coursework of an MSME degree.
Coursework must be completed with a minimum grade point average of 3.00 (‘B’). Students must complete all work within seven years from the start of the program. Directed study (MME 596) is limited to two credits per semester and six credits in total. A maximum of eight semester hours of equivalent coursework from other institutions may be transferred into the program if approved by the program director.
Similarly, a maximum of eight credit hours of approved courses may be taken from Master of Science in Civil Engineering (MSCE), Master of Science in Computer Science (MCS), and Master of Engineering Management (MEM) programs at Saint Martin’s University. A combination of transferred, MSCE, MCS, and MEM credits counting toward a MME degree cannot exceed eight.
